Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Schlage iLink
« on: June 04, 2013, 07:53:42 pm »
The Schlage iLink starter kit comes with a set of keypad lever, bridge device, and light module.

Currently I'm controlling my lights using LinuxMCE, with the Aeon Labs ZWave USB Adapter.
Does anyone know if the lock and light module would work with this Zwave adapter (e.g. Aeon Labs ZWave USB Adapter)

Alternatively, would LinuxMCE support the iLink bridge device, if I were to replace the Aeon Labs stick with it, as a gateway to the zwave network?

Ok, I changed the port of device 53 to 3462 (arbitrarily) and did full regeneration and reload (is this a bug? – should an creation of orbiter allocate a unique port, or is the user responsible to do that?)
In the iPhone I can see the new skin, when connecting to device 53 via the internal interface, but the observation is the same – the iPhone connects but initially is slow to respond to touches and then stops responding.
Regarding the external connection (within the home lan but connecting to the Core’s primary IP address) - is the Dianemo app expected to connect similarly to the RoamingOrb app?

Andrew, I am not challenging the apps - on the contrary, I appreciate the existence of these apps and your quick response and willing to help. I am just sharing my observations – maybe there is a problem with my iPod Touch, although I haven’t seen it failing on other apps yet.
Regarding the RoamingOrb app
a) I understand that the rendering is affected by the orbiter, but the snapshots above where captured immediately after I downloaded and operated the app for the first time, even before configuring the app, so obviously at this stage the app can not be affected by any orbiter.
b) My understanding is that the Port field will impact connectivity and possibly incorrect rendering of the proxy orbiter, but only after there is connection.
In my case I can connect and the incorrect rendering comments refer to the initial state before connection. Just to be sure that the incorrect rendering is not an artifact of connecting to an orbiter with wrong settings, I removed the app and reinstalled it - the rendering is incorrect.

I just tested the RoamingOrb app on another iPod Touch at a friend's home. He doesn't have any home automation so I didn't expect to connect, just to test the rendering of the app before configuration. It shows exactly the same incorrect rendering as mine (shown in attachment RoamingOrbRenderingFailureOniPodTouch.png above) . His iPod Touch version is 4.3.5

Your size attribute is set incorrectly for the device your using. On an iPod Touch, that is older than a 4G, model you need to set the 'size' attribute for your Orbiter in Wizards->Orbiters to 480x320 and then save that change. Then do a full regen. This applies to RoaminOrb or our Dianemo app v1.5.
I don’t think that the rendering of the RoamingOrb app has anything to do with my lmce settings - the rendering on the iPod Touch and on the iPhone4S is incorrect (shown in the attachments above) even before connecting to the Core.

You should also make sure that your Wifi AP or Wifi router is on the LAN side of your Core too and that its DHCP is off.
The Wifi router is on the LAN side and DHCP is off. I initially had some network setting problems that were solved (see http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,12653.msg90843.html#msg90843)
Using the RoaminOrb, I can connect on the internal and the external interfaces (of course I have to change from the network accordingly)

Another thing that often trips people up is that you need a unique 'Listen Port' for each Roaming Orb or Dianemo App.
In the RoamingOrb configuration I have the field “Port” which I set to 3461 to get the connection.
In the Dianemo App I don’t see such field. There is a field: Device number, which I set to 46 or 47 to get the connection

Hi Andrew,

I verified that the resolutions are set as you mentioned (I posted the setting snapshots from  of each proxy orbiter in http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11655.msg90839.html#msg90839)
I did a full regeneration and reload of the orbiters.

I would suggest that you post some screen shots (from inside Web Admin) showing the settings you have for your proxy orbiters etc. I'm thinking you must have a setting wrong somewhere.

Hi Andrew,

Here are the snapshots from the Web Admin for the relevant devices:
Device 46 – iPod Touch Orbiter
Device 47 – Generic Proxy Orbiter
Device 52 – iPhone4S
Device 53 – Generic Proxy Orbiter

p.s. The snapshots are in 4 sections. Please see the next 3 posts as well

I tried to work with the Dianemo app instead, v1.5 but had problems (I posted the problems in http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,12653.msg90727.html#msg90727 and in http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11655.msg90762.html#msg90762).

The RoamingOrb app seems to be doing better on the connection side (I can connect using the external interface on the iPod Touch), but the rendering is incorrect (see snapshot: RoamingOrbRenderingFailureOniPodTouch).

On the iPhone, I cannot get to configure the RoamingOrb - the button Save settings and connect renders as a line and does not respond to clicking on it (see snapshot: RoamingOrbConfigFailureOniPhone4S)

It appears you are attempting to connect your iOS devices via a Wifi access point on the WAN side of your Core. However the wifi access point must be on the LAN side as with all other Orbiters or MD's.
Andrew,
To clarify, I switch the iPod / iPhone to the internal network before trying to connect via the internal interface. Similarly,
I switch to the external network before trying to connect via the external interface.

Hello,
I’m having problems to connect from the Dianemo Orbiter to the Core, from an iPod Touch and from an iPhone4S.
Here are the connection details and my observations:

iPod Touch: version 4.2.1
iPhone: version iOS 5.1.1
Dianemo iOS Orbiter app on iPod Touch and on iPhone: version 1.5

iPod Touch connection settings:
Internal connection - successfully connects
Device number: 46 (iPodTouch – Generic Web Device, resolution 480x320, basic skin
User name: (blank)
Password: (blank)
Nerve Centre IP: 192.168.80.1

External connection – fails to connect
Device number: 46 (iPodTouch – Generic Web Device). Also tried 47: Generic Proxy Orbiter, resolution 480x320
User name: *****
Password: *****
Nerve Centre IP: 192.168.1.62

iPhone connection settings:
Internal connection – connects but initial is slow to respond to touches and then stops responding (progress circle not showing up)
Device number: 52 (iPone4G – Generic Web Device). Also tried 53: Generic Proxy Orbiter, resolution 960x640, basic skin and the iPod Touch lower resolution device
User name: (blank)
Password: (blank)
Nerve Centre IP: 192.168.80.1

External connection – fails to connect
Device number: 52 (iPone4G – Generic Web Device). Also tried 53: Generic Proxy Orbiter, resolution 960x640, basic skin and the iPod Touch lower resolution device
User name: *****
Password: *****
Nerve Centre IP: 192.168.1.62

Is connection trough external interface (within the external lan) expected to work for lmce - non Dianemo installations?

Avi

The following link (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Internal_and_External_networks_swapped/not_working) helped solve the problem of wrong IP addresses. I had the external / internal interfaces mapped to eth2 / eth3 respectively. According to the link LMCE assumes that the external / internal interfaces are on eth0 / eth1, and sends traffic in wrong directions which disrupt the
external network DHCP.

The wrong configuration was a result of cloning a VM image, where I probably added and removed inetrfaces ending up in wrong
eth2 / eth3 naming in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

In /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules I renamed eth2 / eth3 to eth0 / eth1
After rebooting, devices connected through the linksys to the secondary nic are assigned IP addresses in the range of 192.168.80.xxx

After this I was able to test the connection from RoamingOrb and Dianemo Orbiter.
I tested the connection of both apps from an iPod Touch and from an iPhone4S

Connecting using the Dianemo Orbiter
From the iPod Touch:
• Dianemo Orbiter can NOT connect through the external interface to lmce (the RoaminOrb succefully connects)
• Dianemo Orbiter can connect through the internal interface to lmce

From the iPhone4S:
• Still needs to be tested

Connecting using the RoamingOrb
From the iPod Touch:
• RoamingOrb can connect through the internal and the external interface to lmce.
However, the rendering is not correct. It is missing part of the frame - the right 1/3rd part of the screen is blank. (see snapshot: RoamingOrbRenderingFailureOniPodTouch)

From the iPhone4S:
• RoamingOrb can not be configured. The button Save settings and connect renders as a line and does not respond to clicking on it (see snapshot: RoamingOrbConfigFailureOniPhone4S)

I found a thread that discusses the New Version of the Dianemo iOS Orbiter (in http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11655.0.html). I’ll also post my Dianemo observations on it.

Avner

What happens if you connect a laptop by cable to one of the other lan ports on the linksys?
Just to check you are connecting the link from the lmce internal card to a lan port on the linksys and not the internet/wan port?

I connected a desktop by cable to one of the other lan ports on the Linksys.
The IP address is 192.168.122.62, again outside the range of 192.168.80.xxx

Code: [Select]
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.76
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.122.62
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.122.1

In my Linksys WRT45G device configuration, I also have the following settings:

1. Internet Connection Type.
According to Linksys manual, this is the Router’s IP address, when seen from the WAN, or the Internet. I left it at its default value: Automatic Configuration – DHCP (see in snapshot1 in previous posting)
Should I change it to static and give it an IP address that is in the range (e.g. 192.168.80.131)?
Or does it not matter at all, since the wire is hooked to the lan port on the linksys and not the internet/wan port?

2. Operating Mode (in Setup / Advanced Routing)
According to Linksys manual it could be Gateway, if the device is hosting your network’s connection to the Internet or Router if the Router exists on a network with other routers.
On my device, it is set to Router

On the core I have the network interfaces set up using eth2, eth3 as follows:

Code: [Select]
auto eth2
iface eth2 inet static
address 192.168.1.62
gateway 192.168.1.254
netmask 255.255.255.0

auto eth3
iface eth3 inet static
address 192.168.80.1
netmask 255.255.255.0

From the core I can access:
•   The Internet, through the external interface
•   The lmce-admin (on 192.168.80.1)
•   The linksys admin (on 192.168.80.130)

From the desktop (as from the iPod) I cannot access the internal network (192.168.80.xx) unless i set the IP address of these devices statically.

Not sure what else I could do.

Fibres,

I have exactly the network settings that you mentioned. The secondary nic (192.168.80.1) is wired to one of the linksys LAN ports.
The attached images show the Linksys setting details:
Snapshot1 - Basic setup - the local IP address is set to 192.168.80.130. DHCP Server is disabled.
  I’m not sure what the combo item: Automatic Configuration – DHCP in the Internet setup section means:
  I set the address of the Linksys to 192.168.80.130 in the Router IP section,
  and the DHCP server is disabled in the section: Network Address Server Settings (DHCP)
Snapshot2 - Wireless setup - the DHCP server is disabled. The name of the network is unique (MoshkovitzLinuxMCE_Linksys) so when I connect to it using my iPod, there is no option that I’m on a different network mistakenly.
Snapshot3 - Local network – Another indication that DHCP server is disabled.

Yet, when I’m connecting with the iPod to this network, the iPod IP address is set to 192.254.95.149, which is outside the range of the 192.168.80.xx.
I’m puzzled where the iPod gets that address from?
